|Laura and Jeff both come from families in the teaching
profession. As we've looked back at our separate lives
growing up, we seem to have traveled similar paths that
eventually led us to each other. It was a lovely winter's
day, the 21st of July in 1990, when we were married at
Laura's hometown church in Lambayeque, Peru. This
has been a wonderful start for our dreams coming true.
A Partnership that Can't Be Measured by Material Gains !!

=> In the Mid-90's, SUNY Brockport hired a Master Drummer to teach classes.
I attended many sessions of Khalid Saleem's Community Drumming at the college.
In 2004, I began an intensive two-year training with Khalid... student / assistant,
and was appointed as a volunteer, by NY State, to the Department of Dance.
=> In 2011, I attended REMO's HealthRHYTHMS Basic Course, AND
Jim Donovan's Drum Circle Facilitator/Teacher Training . . . plus several
of Jim's day-long classes and workshops. I am honored to consider
myself a part of the Rhythm Revival, and look forward to Much
More from Jim Donovan . . . Teacher / Mentor / Friend ! !
